2024 Alabama Safe Schools Initiative awards application now open

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall is recognizing school safety programs and improvements across the state. On Tuesday, Marshall announced that the application process for the 2024 Alabama Safe Schools Initiative Awards is now open.

“The safety of our schoolchildren is always on the forefront of our minds and hearts. That is why it is important to highlight and promote the innovative efforts to improve student safety through the Alabama School Safety Initiative,” said Marshall. “As we head into the new school year, I look forward to continuing to spotlight the best school safety ideas for school administrators, resource officers, parents and students.”

The 2024 Alabama Attorney General’s Safe Schools Initiative process will feature a comprehensive four-phase application and review process designed to evaluate and enhance the safety of school protocols. Specifically, preparation and training, collaboration with local emergency response agencies, involvement of school resource officer or alternate security personnel, structure and innovation of safety technology, community participation, and law-related and prevention education.

Marshall said that August 16 is the deadline for receipt of all applications (Phase 1) and Evaluation of Emergency Preparedness (Phase 2).
